Wow. From a casual inspection, this looks pretty nice.
However, I didn't look at it too closely. I don't want to be tainted if
you are unable to send in an assignment. However, the selection of
methods, etc. seems fine.
The ChangeLog looked good, AFAICT. The code formatting is not GNU
standard. That will have to be rectified. And, if/when the code is
incorporated into the cygwin DLL, the copyright info will have to be
changed to confirm to the rest of cygwin's source modules.
I wish I could get people to look at sending in an assigment *before*
they start doing work. It would save a lot of time, I think.
Instead we'll now shortly be hearing from the "usual" people asking why
this isn't in cygwin already.
